The Fujifilm X-T4 is the company's latest high-end photo and video APS-C mirrorless camera. It brings in-body stabilization, faster shooting, improved autofocus and a larger battery to the already very capable X-T3.

Fujifilm says that the X-T4 is a sister model to the X-T3, rather than a replacement, which is borne out by the specs and pricing. It's a 26MP camera capable of 20 fps shooting and 4K capture at up to 60p. In use we found it offers distinct benefits over both the X-T3 and the older X-H1. And, although the autofocus performance isn't cutting edge, it offers one of the best stills and video options you can buy.

Key specifications

  • 26MP BSI CMOS sensor
  • In-body image stabilization (up to 6.5EV correction)
  • 20 fps shooting with AF (15 with new mechanical shutter)
  • 4K video (DCI or UHD) at up to 60p
  • 1080 video at up to 240 fps, output as 4-10x slow-motion footage
  • Fully articulated rear touchscreen
  • 3.68M-dot OLED electronic viewfinder (up to 100 fps refresh rate)
  • New NP-W235 battery rated to give 500 shots per charge
  • Dual UHS-II card slots
  • USB-C type connector allowing USB PD charging
  • 12 Film Simulation modes, including Eterna Bleach Bypass

The X-T4 ia available body-only at a price of $1699, which represents a $200 premium over the original list price of the X-T3. It's also available as a kit with the 18-55mm F2.8-4.0 OIS lens for $2099 or with the 16-80mm F4 OIS WR for $2199.


What's new and how it compares

Image stabilization, a bigger battery and faster continuous shooting, but also a bigger price tag. How does the X-T4 measure up to its rivals?

Initial impressions

The X-T4 splits the difference between the X-T3 and the older X-H1. It might be videographers that most benefit from upgrading.

Image quality

The X-T4 delivers image quality much like that of X-T3. Which means attractive JPEGs, solid Raw performance but now with stabilization to support slower shutter speeds.

Autofocus

Autofocus is improved, compared to the X-T3 but our tests suggest Fujifilm hasn't yet bridged the gap to catch up with the best of its rivals. We tried to pin down its strengths and weaknesses.

Video performance

Stabilized, highly detailed video is one of the X-T4's standout features. We found a lot to like, both in the footage and the way the camera handles.

Conclusion

The X-T4 might seem expensive for an APS-C camera in the era of (comparatively) low cost full-frame, but few cameras offer its combination of stills and video capabilities.
